I think you are spot on, Sundew. My first thought was a sea mouse (Aphrodita aculeata) but they are indeed usually more 'furry/bristly', so possibly a scale worm (Polynoidae...?). Those are not all that well-recorded/imaged and it could even be a new species. (This from someone who used to run a marine re...
